I think collecting and adding bits is part of the joy of owning this system ..... you do not mention having slopes ... out comes the credit card :lol:

This year I am adding slopes and will look at getting some blue tiles for naval combat.

Forgot the slopes! I have a box full of them they are great for long low ridges such as those at Waterloo :)

I am not addicted... can give it up at any time! Here is the Hexon Terrain set up for the entire Battle of Marne, Sept 1914. We provided a demonstration on the 100th anniversary of the battle in the town of Dormans, where there is a huge commemorative chapel. The total length of tables was over 50'. Don't ask how many Hexon pieces that equated to...

Don't suppose you have any pictures of the entire thing when it was finished do you?

Yes, the whole project features on this page here:

There are a couple of video walk arounds too, along with various photos of the trial run in Dormans Chateau as well as the three day final demonstration in the chapel.
